The Rise of the Tomb Raider has been out now for nearly a year. It was first released for the Xbox One platform and was then released on the PC after a few months.
Unfortunately, the game is still not on the PS4 platform but luckily, Square Enix, the publisher of the game, has announced a couple of weeks ago that they will be releasing the Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Playstation 4 this coming October.
Although the game has been out for 9 months, people are still buying this copy of the game because the game is just so good. And, the Playstation 4 offers superior graphics over the Xbox One.
Well, there is another news that will surely entice you to get a copy of the game for the Playstation 4 game console.
Crystal Dynamics, the developers of the game, along with Square Enix said that if you pre-order the game right now, you will also receive the 2013 Tomb Raider game absolutely free!
I think both of the companies want to reward loyal fans for waiting for the game to be ported to their favorite game console.
If you’re asking why the game was delayed on other platforms, that is because Microsoft gained exclusive rights and that the game was an Xbox One timed exclusive, which means that Xbox One will be having this game for months before it will be released on other gaming platforms.
Aside from the free Tomb Raider game, players using the Playstation 4 game console should also expect some new goodies along with it.
Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics is set to release the 20th Anniversary Edition of the game for all gaming platforms. This is their way of thanking the fans for their continued support since Lara Croft’s inception.
One of the biggest additions in the Anniversary Edition is the inclusion of a new single player mode called the “Blood Ties” where Lara Croft must fight her uncle for the rights of the Croft manor.
There is also another game mode called “Lara’s Nightmare” where she will confront hordes of zombies. This will surely delight fans of Zombie games (imagine Lara Croft fighting against creatures that are out to eat her).
And lastly, they can also expect a multiplayer cooperative mode called “Endurance”. I think this is an Alamo style of gameplay but details have been sparse about it.
Just when you thought that that were the only goodies you can expect, there are also some more things you can get when you pre-order your copy of the Rise of the Tomb Raider.
The good news for Playstation 4 owners is that if you get the PS4 port of the game, you will also receive all of the goodies that come before it. You will unlock all of the DLC content as well as all of the costumes and other stuff. Plus, the game will have VR support once the Playstation VR headset releases in the same month.
So, if you’re going to get the Rise of the Tomb Raider, be sure to pre-order your copy now so that you can avail of all of these goodies.
